The question of the moment is Why Did You Do It? And the answer provided by Stretch on the original single front cover artwork is confusing in that there seems to be a yellow-faced man staring at a couple kissing. Maybe he is angry at what they are doing and would ask the question about why they did it when they stopped. On the remix is a babe taking off her panties outdoors. Perhaps she had a good reason for doing it, we may never find out. Mystery!
It is notable on the original single front cover artwork for Meet Me On The Corner by Lindisfarne the band are standing around on a street but the way the shot is taken, it is not at all obvious that they are on a street corner. Maybe the street corner is to the right of the shop they are leaning against, then again maybe not. On the remix we find a babe who is definitely more inviting and if you look carefully, you will see that just behind her is the corner of the street. This remix is the right angle. Get it?
A song called Bubblin' (with the missing 'g' at the end to make it sound more sexy) can easily be spoiled by a poor single cover. And the original artwork shows nothing more than the band members for the artist Blue. They aren't bubblin' in any way - with or without the 'g'. On the remix is a mature babe who is sitting in a bubblin(g) bath of some kind, or maybe a hot-tub. It is to be hoped that the bubbles are artificial and not a product of something she has eaten. Donald!
Poor Fleetwood Mac. When having a bit of a brainstorm about what to put on the front cover artwork of their single Gpysy, they could arrive at nothing more exciting than two people dancing, and one looking on jealously. It's a good job that AllBum.Art is here to help. On the remixed cover is a gypsy. We know that she is a gypsy because of the bandana she is wearing and her oversized earrings. Everyone knows those are gypsy hallmarks, right? Hoopy!
Nothing beats a good angel-based remix and Angel Of The Morning by Juice Newton (real name Judy and not Juice, obviously) is just such a song. The original single front cover artwork shows Ms Newton looking anything but angelic. And whether it is the morning or not is debatable. On the remix an angel is sitting on a rock warming herself in the morning sun. She will need to, as other than her wings, she hasn't got much to keep her warm. Lizard!
In some ways it is difficult to improve upon the original album front cover artwork for Hooked by Great White, which shows what appears to be a naked babe, clasping onto a fishing hook of some girth. She has certainly been hooked. The remix changes very little. A babe is still hooked, but this time as she leans astride a pommelhorse rather than being out at sea. And the hook is not a fishing hook this time, nor is it Captain Hook, or Doctor Hook. It's a kind of a crook, that is to say by hook, or by crook. Look, we never said this web-site was intellectual. Book!
It looks as if Iyaz is pointing to something on the original single front cover artwork. Maybe the thing he is pointing to is So Big, but that is not visible to us. On the remix is a babe who is undoubtedly big, and maybe even so big. So big, in fact, that her bikini top is not holding her boobs in. It might be that someone needs to help her understand how bras are sized so that she can choose a better fit next time. Then again, maybe not. Peeking!
What is it that is About Your Dress? If The Maccabees are trying to help us answer this question, it would seem that it would be a dress which is made from a pair of curtains and is designed on a frilly 19th century pair of galoshes, or something. Anyway, the remix tells us that what it is that is about someone's dress is that it is a red dress that has been taken off and hung on the rung of some stairs, leaving the wearer in nothing but red high heels. And carrying a glass of wine. Nipple!
You Sexy Dancer is a single by The Rockford Files. This is not the TV show The Rockford Files, starring James Garner, but some other band whose idea of single cover artwork is a drawing of a babe in boots and a short skirt, flashing her panties whilst she twirls around. On the remix is a similarly colored girl who is also a sexy dancer, maybe of the pole kind. Magenta!
When Skee-Lo had recorded his album (and single of the same name) Top Of The Stairs, he must have been exhausted. So much so that for the original front cover artwork, all he could manage was a picture of himself with no stairs to climb. On the remix is a babe who is trying to make her way to the top of the stairs, but seems to be more concerned with taking off her panties whilst sitting on the stairs. Maybe that is why Skee-Lo is in no rush to make it all the way to the top. Descent!
